Artists in Profile

About the Series

Artists in Profile airs Fridays at 7:00pm.
Artists in Profile takes a look at the creative process. The inspiration and the drive to be the best in their chosen field. From musicians, to actors, to dancers and painters, Artists in Profile talks with our areas creators.

In 2011, the Illinois Arts Council contacted WQPT to offer production assistance for a program that highlighted the accomplishments of our areas artists.

"WQPT is honored to showcase the creativity of visual and performance artists in a format not found in our region. It's been a wonderful addition to our programming," said Mary Pruess, WQPT General Manager. If you are interested or know someone who should be featured, please contact us.

Funding for Artists in Profile is provided by viewers like you. With additional funding from the Illinois Arts Council.
